Main Street Project hopes to share Christmas magic with Winnipeg homeless

A Winnipeg non-profit helping some of the city’s most vulnerable residents is looking to provide a little something special during the holidays.

The Main Street Project has put out a call to the public for donations of items to include in gift bags that will be handed out to people staying at the shelter Christmas Day.

“It’s our second annual Holiday Gift Drive for our community members at Main Street Project. We’re collecting donations to put together about 250 packages so each member has a gift to open Christmas morning,” said Main Street Project’s Cindy Titus.

“A lot of people who come through our doors at this time of year can be very lonely or feel isolated. Many are not in touch with family so the people at Main Street Project are the only support they have,” Titus said.

So far though, Titus added, they are off to a slow start.

“We are just reaching out. Last year was amazing and we’re hoping to put amazing gifts together again this year.”

Items needed:

Some of the common items needed include hygiene products, soap, deodorant, shampoo, and razors.

Fun items can include things like cookies, chocolates, a deck of cards.

Below is a wish list provided by the Main Street Project:

The Main Street Project has a list of items that would be appreciated for their gift drive.

Items can be dropped off either of two locations:

  • Monday to Friday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. at  661 Main Street
  • Evenings and weekends at 71 Martha Street

Donations can also be made online. Staff are hoping to have the donations by Dec. 14.

Titus said the positive feeling coming from the gift bags goes both ways.

“I think it’s an extra special experience for people receiving the gifts and for our staff as well,” Titus said.

Sean Penn producing 'Khashoggi murder film' in Istanbul

Oscar-winning actor pictured filming in front of Saudi consulate, where journalist was murdered, Turkish media says.

    Oscar-winning actor and filmmaker Sean Penn has reportedly begun filming a new documentary about the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul earlier this year. 

    Penn, accompanied by a crew of around 10 including bodyguards, was spotted shooting in front of the consulate building in the Turkish city on Wednesday, Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news agency reported.

    The two-time Oscar winner was also seen outside the consul general’s nearby residence, the agency said. 

    Khashoggi, a columnist for the Washington Post and a US resident since 2017, was killed during his visit to the consulate to obtain marriage-related paperwork on October 2.

    Despite searches of the consulate and other places, the whereabouts of his remains are still unknown.

    In one image shared by Anadolu, Penn was seen outside the mission where the Saudi writer was strangled before he was cut up into pieces by a 15-man Saudi team especially sent to Istanbul for the task.

    The actor was also expected to meet Khashoggi’s Turkish fiancee, Hatice Cengiz, during his visit, according to Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah.

    The murder of Khashoggi, a vocal critic of the Saudi government and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, prompted an international outcry and forced many countries to reassess their ties with the kingdom.

    After weeks of repeated denials that it had any involvement with his disappearance and contradictory statements, Riyadh eventually acknowledged last month that Saudi officials had planned and executed the killing, blaming a “rogue” team. 

    The CIA has reportedly assessed that Prince Mohammed, also known as MBS, ordered the killing of Khashoggi.

    So far, 21 people, including security officers, have been arrested in Saudi Arabia in connection with the killing.

    Penn has previously attracted controversy as a result of his forays into politics and current affairs, especially after he and Mexican-American actress Kate del Castillo interviewed Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman while he was on the run.

    Penn, 58, won Oscars for best actor for his roles in Mystic River and in Milk.

    Nick Jonas Is One of the Most-Searched Male Celebrities in India After Marrying Priyanka Chopra

    Nick Jonas has been fully embraced by fans in India thanks to his whirlwind romance with Priyanka Chopra.

    Ever since the couple’s July engagement, Jonas has been soaring up the country’s search charts. According to the Times of India, he finishes the year near the top of the list of the most-searched male celebrities in India in 2018. Indian actor and television personality Salman Khan tops the list — which also includes Justin Bieber, another pop star whose high-profile marriage made headlines this year.

    Jonas, 26, and Chopra, 36, exchanged vows in two lavish ceremonies in India over the weekend.

    “I love that our wedding was a religious mash-up,” the Quantico star told PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s issue, on stands Friday. “We took beautiful traditions that we both grew up with and personalized them in a way that made sense for us. It’s been incredible to find the commonalities between our beliefs and figuring out how to blend them in a respectful and meaningful way.”

    The bride and groom were married in a Christian ceremony at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur on Dec. 1, a day after their Mehendi ceremony, where they were both adorned with henna tattoos, and a Sangeet that night in which both families performed elaborate musical numbers with choreography and costumes.

    After the Western ceremony, the couple hosted their 225 friends and family members, including Jonas’ brothers Kevin (with wife Danielle), Joe (with his fiancée, actress Sophie Turner) and Frankie, along with Chopra’s brother Siddharth, at an elegant sit-down dinner reception with a live band. Speeches and toasts were given by all three of Jonas’ brothers as well as Chopra’s mother, Madhu, and brother (Priyanka’s father, Ashok, died of cancer in 2013).

    On Sunday, the two exchanged vows again in an extravagant Hindu wedding, where Chopra wore a traditional red lehenga. They concluded the weekend with a Bidaai, a bridal ritual in which Chopra’s family blessed her new life with Jonas.

    “The emotions were running high during the ceremonies, I think especially during the Western wedding for me,” Jonas told PEOPLE. “You know, you think your whole life about that moment. Honestly, I could not have imagined it would be as perfect as it was. It was highly emotional.”

    Tyson Fury changed ring underlay just hours before Deontay Wilder draw amid concerns over bounce

    Training Ben Davison has revealed the Gypsy King ensured the underlay was swapped for a harder material after finding it too bouncy.

    It’s claimed the softer underlay would have prevent Fury from making the most of his speed and movement.

    And it’s reckoned it had been a plan all along by Deontay Wilder’s team to give the American another advantage at home.

    Unfortunately for him, Fury and his men are already wise to opponents playing games.

    The British ace also changed the underlay in the run-up to his 2015 win over Wladimir Klitschko in Germany.

    And Fury was clearly in no mood to allow Wilder the softer ground in Los Angeles.

    Meanwhile, it’s been revealed Fury will make his first UK appearance since the fight TONIGHT.

    Fury will be present at Old Trafford to watch Manchester United’s Premier League clash with Arsenal.

    Being a die-hard Red Devil, Fury will be hoping this bout also doesn’t end in a draw.

    ‘Celebrity Deathmatch’ Reboot In Works At MTV Studios With Ice Cube Set To Star

    MTV Studios is reviving another classic MTV series, Celebrity Deathmatch. The recently launched studio is developing a reimagined version of the cult-favorite claymation stop-motion satire that skewered celebrities, politicians and everyone in between during its famed original 1998-2002 run. Ice Cube is attached to star and will executive produce alongside his partner Jeff Kwatinetz through his Cube Vision production company. Series creator Eric Fogel will return to executive produce as well, with additional showrunners and talent to be named shortly.

    The all-new Celebrity Deathmatch will be shopped as a weekly series to premium and streaming networks in 2019. The show is the first step in a plan for reinventing the franchise across consumer products, gaming, theatrical and more.

    MTV in June announced the creation of MTV Studios with exploiting library IP as a main goal and an initial slate that included a reimagining of MTV’s animated comedy Daria, an update of the unscripted series Made as well as a live-action remake of animated sci-fi series Aeon Flux and a return of the network’s reality series The Real World, largely for digital platforms. They recently were joined by an Undressed revival as the first of the studio’s reboots found a home when MTV Studios made a deal for The Real World at Facebook.

    “We’re excited to grow our partnership with Ice Cube and Cube Vision to reimagine this fan favorite,” said Chris McCarthy, President of MTV, VH1 and CMT. “Deathmatch was the meme before memes, remains a hot topic on social media and will be a smart, funny way to tackle the over-the-top rhetoric of today’s pop culture where it belongs – in the wrestling ring.”

    Celebrity Deathmatch, co-executive produced by Cube Vision’s Ben Hurwitz, expands Ice Cube’s relationship with MTV Networks. Cube Vision is producing Hip Hop Squares, a take on the classic game show Hollywood Squares, for MTV sibling VH1.

    “Happy to once again be working with Viacom and MTV on a fan favorite like Celebrity Deathmatch and to continue our success together,” said Ice Cube.

    Celebrity Deathmatch is highly regarded as an incubator for top comedic talent, including bestselling author A.J. Jacobs (1999-2002) and writers and producers who went on to contribute to comedy staples from The Simpsons to Key and Peele, Family Guy and more.

    The original series premiered on May 14, 1998, and ended on October 20, 2002, airing for 75 episodes (you can watch a trailer below). A TV special, Celebrity Deathmatch Hits Germany, aired in June 2001. Reruns of the series aired for a brief period that year on UPN.

    A revival of the series premiered in 2006 on MTV2, without involvement from Fogel. The premiere drew over 2.5 million viewers, becoming MTV2’s highest-rated season premiere ever. It was canceled again in 2007 after two seasons. In April 2015, MTV2 announced a reboot of the series, but the pilot ultimately was not picked up to series.

    Ice Cube/Cube Vision are repped by WME. Fogel is repped by Gotham Group.

    The Woman Who Outruns the Men, 200 Miles at a Time

    Courtney Dauwalter specializes in extremely long races. But her success in winning them has opened a debate about how men’s innate strength advantages apply to endurance sports.

    By Rebecca Byerly

    Photographs by Max Whittaker

    HOMEWOOD, Calif. — At 1:40 in the morning, running through the woods near Lake Tahoe, Courtney Dauwalter began hallucinating.

    She saw live puppets playing on a swing set on the side of the trail. Trees and rocks turned into faces. She was on her second night without sleep, 165 miles into a 205-mile race through the mountains, pushing her body to levels considered physically impossible not long ago, and seeing very strange things in the night.

    Dauwalter had been on her feet for almost 40 hours and was leading the field of 215 runners as she set her sights on a course record for September’s Tahoe 200, one in a series of very, very long ultramarathons, the latest craze among distance running’s lunatic set. Their hero is Dauwalter, a 33-year old with a reputation for outrunning men and shattering course records. She has won 11 ultramarathons and finished second in seven other endurance races.

    This weekend, she will try to break the women’s world record for the most miles run in 24 hours, at the Desert Solstice competition in Phoenix. She will have to run more than 161.55 miles to do so. She already holds the American women’s record, 159.32 miles. This fall, she ran 279.2 miles in what’s known as Big’s Backyard Ultra, a grueling race of attrition during which runners have to complete a 4.16667-mile loop each hour. If they want to put their feet up, eat, go to the bathroom or close their eyes for a few minutes, they have to earn the time by running faster. The last person standing wins.

    By the third night of that race, only Dauwalter and Johan Steene remained. After going mile for mile with Steene for 67 hours, Dauwalter conceded. At that point, she and Steene had run 33 miles farther in the race than anyone had before.

    “The race is set up perfectly to test your limits,” said Dauwalter, a former science teacher from Golden, Colo., who wants to achieve 300 miles at Big’s Backyard Ultra next year. “You just go until you reach your own finish line.”

    Where exactly that is is anyone’s guess. For now, elite ultrarunning is one of the few sports in which women appear able to hold their own with men. Dauwalter’s prowess has crystallized the debate about whether psychological fortitude can trump men’s innate strength advantages in endurance sports.

    This much is clear: As the distance lengthens, the biological advantages that men have grow smaller.

    In 2017, Dauwalter won the inaugural Moab 240, a 238-mile race that zigzags along the Colorado River. She completed the route in a little less than 58 hours and beat the next competitor, a man, by 10 hours, or 20 miles. She said a one-minute nap on the side of the trail the second night of the race revived her and pushed her to the finish.

    “We know that men are simply bigger and have more muscle mass and are more powerful and faster,” said Heather Heying, an evolutionary biologist. But, she added, “This is about stamina, and stamina is some combination of yes, strength, but also psychological will. It begs the question, is there something going on for women perhaps given our very long evolutionary history as mammals who spent a long time gestating and then giving birth, that gives us a psychological edge in extremely long-term endurance events?”

    To the surprise of many in the ultrarunning world, these ridiculously long races are growing in popularity. In 2014, the ultrarunner Candice Burt created the Tahoe 200, the race in which Dauwalter saw the puppets on the swing set. It was the first 200-mile-plus single-loop ultramarathon in the United States. Ninety-one people signed up. The next year, she started the Bigfoot 200, a 206-mile race that traverses the Cascade Mountains in Washington State. In 2017, she added the Moab 240, the race in which Dauwalter obliterated the competition. This year, more than 600 people ran one of the three ultraraces Burt organized.

    A faction of ultrarunning has argued that these events are not really a “race.” They say that the 100-plus-hour cutoffs allow less competitive runners time for sleep, and more time is spent hiking than running. Dr. Martin Hoffman, a former researcher for the Western States 100-mile race, said one reason Dauwalter was so successful was there were still so few people competing at 200 miles. According to Ultrarunning magazine, more than 100,000 people worldwide completed a race longer than a marathon (26.2 miles) in 2017.

    “If you have the best trained male and female ultrarunners competing against each other, the men will always win,” said Hoffman, who ran his first 100-mile race in 1984. He has spent decades researching ultrarunning, but his work does not cover anything longer than 100 miles.

    Heying, the evolutionary biologist, agrees that there is still not enough data to draw conclusions on 200-mile races, but she believes variables like weather, mental strength and innate tolerance for pain help level the field.

    Dick Dauwalter, Courtney’s father, who was part of her crew during the Tahoe 200, said she had always been a competitor. The “tiny little squirt” finished eighth in her home state, Minnesota, in cross-country when she was in seventh grade. During the winter, she would get up when it was still dark to Nordic ski before school, which helped turn her into a state champion in cross-country skiing in high school and earned her a scholarship to the University of Denver.

    “We did not have a lot money, and it was a lot of work getting the kids to their sports,” Dick Dauwalter said. He makes false teeth and jokes that he's not the athletic one in the family. “The deal was if Courtney or her brothers signed up for something, they had to finish the season even if they did not like the sport.”

    A lanky, ponytailed blonde who wears baggy shorts and shirts when she runs, Dauwalter laughs easily and is the opposite of a typically asocial ultrarunner. At Mile 140 of the Tahoe 200, she stopped to give high-fives, sign autographs and talk with girls who had gathered at an aid station to cheer her on. Sometimes during races, she tells jokes to make sure her mind is still working.

    She believes that as her threshold for pain increases, so does her ability to run farther.

    “I put myself in situations where suffering is going to be involved and hope to be able to tap into the mental piece every time that physical pain becomes too much,” she said. Overwhelmed by pain, she dropped out of her first 100-mile race in 2012. She tried again the next year and finished.

    When Dauwalter reached the aid station at Mile 167 of the Tahoe 200, she thanked the volunteers for being up in the middle of the night in freezing temperatures to feed her. She doesn’t keep track of her time when she races, so she asked the group what time it was to figure out how long she had been on her feet.

    Even in the dark, fatigue showed on her sunburned face. Her blue eyes were bloodshot from sleeplessness and the dust clouds that kicked up on the trail. For most of the race, she struggled to hold down solid food and used rewetting drops to fight off swelling corneas, a condition that caused her to go blind in a previous race.

    The aid stations, often simple tents set up between trail heads in the woods, came roughly every 20 miles. They offered burgers, cheese quesadillas, pancakes, pickles, coffee and blankets.

    Dauwalter did not remove her shoes or change her clothes the entire race, but she did brush her teeth with a tiny toothbrush. She filled her water bottles, packed a half-eaten cheese quesadilla in a plastic baggie, and then headed into the night with her pace runner.

    Pacers and the runner’s crew play a critical role in these long races. Dauwalter had three pacers in the Tahoe 200, including her husband, Kevin Schmidt, who organizes logistics for her races and eventually ran with her the last 30 miles in Tahoe.

    Ultrarunners often wear heart rate monitors, stay on strict training schedules and adhere to specific diets. Dauwalter runs about 100 miles a week, but does not follow a plan or a specific training schedule. She said she let her body tell her what it needed and felt like doing each day. She eats whatever she wants.

    The night before the Tahoe 200, she ate candy corn and pizza. After the race, she ate nachos loaded with cheese and barbecue chicken and drank a lot of beer. At Big’s Backyard Ultra, she ate honey stinger waffles, cheese quesadillas, pierogies and pancakes the first thirty hours of the race, and then opted for McDonald’s double cheeseburgers with extra pickles.

    In addition to dehydration, extreme fatigue and hyperthermia, Dauwalter and the other runners who take on these multiday races face encounters with bears, mountain lions, snakes and scorpions. Burt and her team mark the 200-mile courses with pink flags roughly every half-mile, but runners, including Dauwalter, have become lost. For safety, their positions are marked with a GPS spot tracking system.

    The coordinates also allow people to follow runners in real time. Hundreds of people followed Dauwalter’s races in Moab and in Tahoe.

    “I think more than anything, what we are seeing with Courtney is psychological,” said Steven Kotler, an author and director of research at the Flow Genome Project. “Every time she runs one of these long races, she believes she can do the next one faster.”

    She is not invincible, though.

    After tracking Dauwalter for two days in Tahoe, Kyle Curtin passed her at Mile 182. Forty-nine hours 54 minutes after starting the Tahoe 200, Dauwalter crossed the finish line in second, twenty-seven minutes behind Curtin. The two set a new course record by almost 10 hours.

    “Courtney was definitely the person to beat,” Curtin said. “I ran the time I did because I was trying to catch her the entire race.”

    The third-place runner finished 10 hours behind them. Most of the other runners finished a day or two later.

    Dauwalter said there was nothing she could do to ward off the puking and the fatigue and Curtin.

    “Hopefully now just having experienced those mental and physical components will make it so next time we are just a little bit stronger and can push through them a little bit easier,” she said.

    Dauwalter plans to run the Tahoe 200 again. She and Burt, the race director, believe that it’s possible to finish the race in 42 hours.

    “That’s two, 21 hour 100s on 20,000 feet of climbing for each hundred,” Dauwalter said. “That’s pretty stout, but it’s possible.”

    Kenneth “Zoo” Petty: 5 Things About Mystery Man Seen Hanging Out With Nicki Minaj

    Nicki Minaj sparked engagement rumors when she was spotted with a ring on THAT finger last week. But while we don’t know what the jewelry was all about, we’ve got all the details on who she was with!

    Nicki Minaj, 35, has had fans going wild over the last week after sharing a photo with a mystery man while rocking a massive diamond on her ring finger. Her Barbz still haven’t gotten word from the rapper on whether or not her she got engaged, but her rumored boyfriend has been identified as Kenneth “Zoo” Petty, according to Bossip. So if you’re wondering who this new man is and what happened to Lewis Hamilton, 33 — aren’t we all? — you’re in luck because we’ve got everything you need to know about her possible new boo. Take a look!

    1. Kenneth has a criminal record. After Nicki posted more shots with her mystery man sporting Snapchat filters, Kenneth was identified. His criminal record and mug shot are accessible to the public, and he reportedly was convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl back in 1995. At the time, he would have been about twenty. And now, he is a registered sex offender. Twitter users really don’t think Nicki should be affiliating herself with a rapist, writing on Twitter, “Evidently @NICKIMINAJ is cool w f*cking around & standing w rapists? silence is siding w the oppressor sis u can choose who u make music w & who u date thats for sure.”

    2. He’s a dad. Kenneth allegedly is the father to five children, although it is unknown at this time how old they are and who he had them with.

    3. He lives in Queens. Recall Nicki is from this borough herself! While she was born in Trinidad, she was raised in New York. This is reportedly where Kenneth and Nicki were when they took pics together around Thanksgiving.

    4. Kenneth is older than Nicki. He has been identified as a 40-year-old father of five.

    5. He may already have a girlfriend. Rumor has it, Kenneth was seeing someone named Noelle before Nicki came back into town and they started hanging. Whether they’re still dating, or whether he’s even in a romantic relationship with Nicki at all, remains unclear.

    Hollywoodlife.com has reached out to Nicki Minaj’s rep for comment.

    Trina Braxton defends 'Baby It's Cold Outside' after radio station axes tune over song's lyrics

    How ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ became a song about rape

    Have the PC police gone too far this time? How did the classic Christmas song ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ become the center of a debate over rape and consent? #Tucker

    Not everyone takes issue with the lyrics of the Christmas classic duet "Baby It's Cold Outside."

    Radio stations have banned the song in recent weeks, citing the lyrics' issues with sexual consent, including lines like "Say, what's in this drink?" and "the answer is no … I've got to get home."

    When asked if the song was "date rapey," "Braxton Family Values" star Trina Braxton didn't believe the hype.

    "It's not because she stayed! She chose to stay," Braxton, 44, told TMZ.

    TINA BRAXTON ON WHETHER 'BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE' IS ABOUT RAPE

    "I don't think it's altogether true [that the song is about date rape] because at first, she was like, 'the neighbors might think,' " she said.

    However, Braxton admitted that there is one part of the song that seems a little sketchy in 2018.

    "The only part, when she was like, 'Hey, what's in this drink?' Maybe he slipped her a little … roofie," she said. "But otherwise, she stayed because she wanted to stay, you know?"

    "It's one of those really moldy, oldie, goldies, one of those classics. I think they're taking it a little bit too far," she continued. "It's a great song."

    Sarah Hyland taking social media break after cousin’s death

    Sarah Hyland is taking herself off Twitter in the wake of her 14-year-old cousin’s death.

    After Trevor Canaday was killed by a drunk driver over the weekend, Hyland and her “Modern Family” co-stars shared a GoFundMe page in hopes of helping her family raise money for his funeral and his father’s hospital costs. Hyland, who has health issues of her own, received backlash from internet trolls who claimed she could afford to pay for everything herself.

    “Maybe millionaires shouldn’t be asking for money they have in their wallet. Her clothes alone cost more then my salary,” tweeted one user.

    “Ridiculous to ask us to fund this. Good bye Sarah Hyland delete,” wrote another.

    In response, Hyland is going offline.

    “You guys finally did it. Your horrible negative ignorant words have broken me. Happy? Staying offline for a while,” she wrote. “I have a special announcement and video releasing on Wednesday I believe. So. There’s that. ✌🏼”

    The drunk driver, named Jeffrey Eggeling, ran a red light and crashed into Canaday’s vehicle, which caused Hyland’s cousin to be ejected from the car, according to a press release from the Omaha Police Department.

    Eggeling was booked for two counts of DUI causing serious bodily injury and leaving the scene of a personal injury crash.

    'Four Weddings and a Funeral' Reunion on the Way for Red Nose Day Charity Special

    Last year, the Christmas romantic comedy Love Actually got a sequel in the form of a short film created in conjunction with the charity campaign Red Nose Day. And this year, they’re taking another beloved British romantic comedy and giving it a big reunion.

    Four Weddings and a Funeral is a beloved 1994 romantic comedy written by Love Actually director Richard Curtis, who also happens to be the co-founder of Red Nose Day. So the filmmaker is using his unique position to stage a Four Weddings and a Funeral reunion short that will arrive in 2019, just in time for the film’s 25th anniversary. Find out more below.

    If you’ve never seen Four Weddings and a Funeral, here’s the original trailer and synopsis for the movie:

    Lovable Englishman Charles (Hugh Grant) and his group of friends seem to be unlucky in love. When Charles meets a beautiful American named Carrie (Andie MacDowell) at a wedding, he thinks his luck may have changed. But, after one magical night, Carrie returns to the States, ending what might have been. As Charles and Carrie’s paths continue to cross — over a handful of nuptials and one funeral — he comes to believe they are meant to be together, even if their timing always seems to be off.

    Taking a cue from Red Nose Day Actually, the Four Weddings and a Funeral reunion short film will be called One Red Nose Day and a Wedding. And the follow-up will bring back pretty much everyone from the original cast: Hugh Grant, Andie MacDowell, Kristin Scott Thomas, John Hannah, Rowan Atkinson, James Fleet, David Haig, Sophie Thompson, David Bower, Robin McCaffrey, Anna Chancellor, Rupert Vansittart, Simon Kunz, Sara Crowe and Timothy Walker. The press release indicates there will be “some very special guest stars” making an appearance as well.

    The stars of the original movie aren’t the only ones getting back together for this special project. Original Four Weddings and a Funeral director Mike Newell will be behind the camera again for the project, which picks up 25 years after the original story.

    Richard Curtis had this to say about the Four Weddings and a Funeral reunion short:

    “We’re all definitely older – I suspect no wiser. It’s been really enjoyable working out what’s happened to all the characters – and now they get back together for the 5th wedding. Where, as usual, not everything will go as planned.”

    Since Red Nose Day originates in the United Kingdom, they’ll be getting One Red Nose Day and a Wedding early when Red Nose Day 2019 commences on March 15, 2019. But fans in the United States will be able to watch the short themselves when NBC’s Red Nose Day special airs sometime in May.

    Also, if you’re a big enough fan of Four Weddings and a Funeral (and you happen to live in the United Kingdom), you can enter for a chance to win a visit to the set and have breakfast with the cast and crew or even win a walk-on role in the movie. Just give a donation at Givergy for a chance to win either of those contests. You’ve got until the end of December 9 to enter, but remember, you must live in the United Kingdom.

    Don’t forget, Mindy Kaling is also working on a Hulu reboot of Four Weddings and a Funeral too.
